My day today was marginally calmer than yesterday but it still contained much more excitement than I’d prefer. So again you’re going to get pictures without much commentary; this time, the big hole at the heart of Ryon Lab, which I believe is technically and boringly called a “bay.” First, a construction photo from probably early 1964. Take a good look–that’s the last time you’re going to get a clear view of that side of the Mech Lab:
The next shot was taken right before the building opened in 1965 and you can see how big and deep this area, which was used for large testing machinery, really is:
And finally this one, which I took about a month ago:
Just for the heck of it, here’s a rendering of the building’s exterior. It’s quite bland. The most remarkable thing about Ryon Lab to me, in fact, is where they chose to put it, which I can’t understand for the life of me.
